    Hello, I recently got the SDCC Bruticus set in the mail, and all is good except for one thing. The right arm of blast off was assembled backwards at the pin. I've tried using a pin push and let me tell you, this thing is just not budging. I'm fairly certain i'm hitting the correct side.

    So my question is, how can I make this easier? I don't want to break it obviously, and buying a whole new set just for one figure would be silly.

    A heat gun to carefully soften the plastic then quickly push the threaded side of the pin out first then just finish carefully pulling it out with pliers

    How difficult would you say that is? Seems like a very thing between it working and ruining the area.

    Since not everybody has received their Bruticus set, let alone a Vortex figure, you should post a pic of what you're trying to accomplish. It makes it a lot easier for folks to tell you what you can do. :thumbs2:

    Right, didn't think about that.
